Zimbabwe eyes tourism revival


Zimbabweans are hoping a steady return of tourists will help jolt its economy towards recovery.With the Victoria Falls as one of its major attractions, the country had 1.4 visitors in 1999.

But numbers took a plunge in 2000 following unrest related to the land-redistribution policy implemented by President Robert Mugabe. Now they are slowly bouncing back, but the country still has a long way to go to become a major tourist destination again.

Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from the Victoria Falls.
